1 Answer

Initially disk boot failure now White screen but runs in oter mon

Friends,  I tried to restart my PC after 6 months, initially it showed disk boot failure, then after few trials of power on/off it booted and worked for a day. But the next day onwards that method is not working on the contrary the screen(Acer 17"LCD)goes to white screen for few minutes then to black screen (initially starts with some horizontal lines) . I opened and reassured the tight connection of hard disk, then checked with friends monitor and its works fine. But not with my monitor. Above all I am feeling a mild shock while touching the PC casing, is there  any connection? My question shows my ability, please do help me.

Try checking inside the computer for loose wiring near where the power supply box plugs into the motherboard, make sure that you turn the computer off and remove it from the outlet before opening it. While the computer is open, check all of the leads going into the motherboard are pushed in gently but firmly. Remove the RAM clean it with a soft paintbrush and then return them to there slots ensuring that they are seated correctly. Do the same with the graphics card and sound card if you have them in PCI slots or AGP slot returning them correctly into thier slots.
Put everything back together and before powering back on make sure that the power leads going into your PC and into your monitor have not been damaged in any way. Reboot your computer and try again. If you still get a shock or your computer does not boot properly then you may need to change the power supply box.

I hope this helps

Why is the screen white when i turn it on?


Boot loader failure its a common symptom with tablets 9 out of 10 tablets i repair have this fault freezing on the boot screen because the operating system is corrupt file missing i would never buy any tablet than an ipad you pay for what you get really. You can try and upload an os replacement if you can but its very technical if its out of warranty you will probably pay 60 pounds at a shop to have it repaired so its basically a doorstop unless you have any IT friends.

When i turn the laptop on all i get is a blank screen with the mouse arrow nothing else.


When you turn it on, does it initially show a "splash" screen (a picture) ?
Does it initially show any information, such as the amount of RAM installed,
or any "press <blah> to enter SETUP" message?
If not, then the motherboard has a problem.

If it does display the above, then it will try to load Windows from your disk-drive.
If the disk-drive is not connected, or it has "died", then Windows cannot be loaded,
and all you'll see is a blinking white "underscore".

If Windows does start to load, and you see the mouse-arrow pointer, then Windows is loading, at least partially.

Take your computer to a qualified technician at a computer-store, for thorough trouble-shooting & repair.

My PC won't start? every time i start it the fan just spins fast and loud and nothing happens, the screen doesn't show. this happened when i took the PC apart. it a Compaq presario sr1610nx


Initially test the monitor in another pc, if display available use the monitor in Compaq presario sr1610nx. Load to BIOS by restarting and tapping F1, if the display available, the computer is ok. restart and tap F8, if the advanced boot option screen comes up, the software is ok.
Restart the computer and tap F10 and proceed with a destructive recovery to reload the operating system on the computer

Won't boot up on first try


Whenever you do get it booted into windows, run the command prompt and in there run "chkdsk /f". That will check your disk for errors and repair them. Yours sounds like a boot sector problem, chkdsk should be able to fix that.

Wont recognise disk drive ide error


What you need to do is edit the BIOS so that the computer boots from the CD-ROM initially rather then the harddrive.

To do this follow these instructions:
1. Start the computer and tap the F2 key
2. You will now be in the computer BIOS, look for the option that says "Boot Sequence"
3. Highlight the option that shows your CD-ROM device and tap the "F5" key until it is the first one on the list
4. Hit the "Escape" key and select the option to "Exit & Save Changes".

If you restart your computer it should now boot from the CD-ROM. If you have any problems let me know and I will be more then happy to help you further troubleshoot!
